Found ă mentalism II is inspired by Picasso’s words about his famous Guernica; “[…] an artist who lives and works with spiritual values cannot behave indifferently when faced with a conflict in which the highest values of humanity and civilization are at risk”.

Through Found ă mentalism II we want to invite thinking and change-making, and to ensure that art carries the spirit of Picasso’s words forward; we can be anything but indifferent to conflicts and struggles around us. Through the project, we suggest a perspective and a possibility for a more positive future.

Found ă mentalism II heralds the growth of a diverse cultural, political and economic European society. Global conflict and increasing migration flows provide an opportunity for art to act against a potential for violence, and to embrace cultural diversity and tolerance. Found ă mentalism II proposes a journey through a European culture that is simultaneously common and diverse. We ask if art can come to act as the mutual support between these diverse cultures, and if it can provide a remedy for current societal crises.
